UNIVERSITY EXAMINATIONS. . --- JUNIOR AND SENIOR PUBLIC. SUCCESS OF LOCAL CANDI DATES. The results of the various aulijects for the Junior and Senior publio ex aminations heold by the Melbourne University authorities are coming out slowly, and from teo particulars so far announced it will be seen that the students front the Warrnambool Agri cultural High School have done ex ceedingly well.

THE POLITICAL ARENA. Melbourne, Jan. 10. MR. WATT AND HIS OPPONENT. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 14 January 1914
THE POLITICAL ARENA. , Melbourne, Jan.l '0. MR. WA'T AND HIS OP-. PONENT. At the present moment the atten-' tion of all. thoso who follow Federal . polities at all closely is centred on thl SVictorian elections. Several members of tlhe Watt Ministry who accepted portfolios, the other day are being op. posed, ate they have to resign thenr seats on assuming office. Amongst those whohave to, fight is Mr. Watt, thoe Pemier. His opponent is Mr. Keane, a Labor man, who is a bona fide manual worker, and is not in the pay of any union or league. Mr.Keane Is a fair speaker just. about up to the not very high level of the State .Parliament, whose members speak a good deal worse than the best men in any country debating society, which the writer has visited. Ho was' prac tically unknown when the campaign began. At any rate I, who happen to live in the constituency, did not know that he existed till his candid ature was announced. When an old news aper man says that, it means that the man has m...
LABOR DAILIES. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 14 January 1914
LABOR' DAILIES. In Victoria and New South Wales --where it needs them most--Labor has no dailies. It:seems absurd that the-men who support Labor shoull waste hundreds of thousands annually on strikes, and should not have their own political organs. Even when they get them, they starve them. In 'Tas mania the printers of the "Daily Post," a. Labor paper started a few years ago, are out on strike. The ''Post" declined to give the wages de manded, and the humor of the posi tion lies in the fact that the Labor paper's men. being dissatisfied-it was published in smallerform in the oflico of the Hobart ". fercury"-probably the most conserrative' aper if any part of the English-speaking world. The amount of talk thero has been about, the. New. South Wales.. daily which is to be, is amazing,lMr.Hughes, who is the brain of the party throes a little light on the subject in his book: "The Case for Labor."
